ISLAMABAD  - In what appeared to be a revelation, Defence Minister Ahmed Mukhtar has claimed the government and army’s ‘hand’ in the hunt and killing of Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad.In an interview with the BBC Urdu, Mukhtar said the slain al-Qaeda chief was traced with the help of an abandoned mobile phone SIM, which according to him, often remained off, adding that the SIM was found by intelligence agencies.He said there was a mutual understanding between the United States and Pakistan that anything emerged in Urdu would be handed over to Islamabad, while the material found in Arabic or English was to be provided to Washington for investigation.He gave a vague answer when asked why Pakistan was being criticised for despite its role in the killing of Osama bin Laden. “I don’t know who great leader Osama was and how his action have positive for Muslim countries.” When asked why Pakistan was punishing Dr Shakil Afridi for providing clue against the worlds most wanted man instead of announcing reward for him, the minister said Afridi was being tried and he should give information to Pakistani and not the US officials.
